I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Geschwister-Scholl-Institute of Political Science at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU Munich). I received my Ph.D from the University of Salzburg in May 2019. My main areas of research interest include the analysis of political institutions on women's representation . In my dissertation, I analyzed how recruitment procedures of political parties affect the representation of women in national parliaments in Europe. Related work has appeared in European Public Policy, Electoral Studies and Elections, Public Opinions and Parties. I am also co-editor of the blog Counting Counts.
I obtained a Master's degree in European Affairs from Sciences Po Paris. In my Master's thesis, she analyzed modernization tendencies of far-right parties and the role of women at different hierarchy levels of far-right parties. She completed a Bachelor's program in European Studies at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg and the Linguistic University of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
I am excited to join the Geschwister-Scholl-Institute of Political Science at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU Munich) as researcher and lecturer for the summer term 2019.
